Print jobs queue vanishes

Windows 10

Hi, I have ran into a problem with printing over local network. I have met this problem on two different networks I access, with two completely different printers, in one case, one, which is added with static IP, one added with autodiscover. I can add the printer. I can see the printer status (shows prepared/offline). But when I press the print button, no matter, in what application, nothing happens. Even test page from printer settings is not printed. //UPDATE - funny thing: I cannot print from regural apps, I cannot print the test page from the modern version of setting in win10, but I can print the test page from context menu in Administrativ tools in printer section. In Print jobs queue window (not sure about the english name ot this window, but it is under the printer icon at the bottom in taskbar), there will flash the file in queue, but it is removed again, the queue is again empty and no file is sent to the printer... - I have also tried to disable firewall. - I have also tried restarting printer spooling service and one other printer related service (do not know its EN name). - I have also found some error in event log with printing service, which requires "Interactive service detecting". I have fixed this service and turned it on. Now no error is shown, but the issue is the same. Printing queue is immediately removed, and no file is being sent to the printer - I have checked, if any print-related service is disabled at msconfig - I have tried to launch troubleshooter, which found no error. - I have also checked, in control panel, if I have permission to use the printer. I have everything allowed for me, creators, administrators, even for everyone group. aaand still nothing... So anybody has an idea, how to fix this, please? Thanks in advance

Windows 10 OEM changed to digital license.

Windows 10

I purchased a windows 10 gaming pc (preinstalled). So the version of windows is OEM. but now, on the activation menu in settings, it states that it's activated with digital license, linked to my Microsoft account. Does this mean I would be able to upgrade motherboard without having to purchase another copy of windows? Being able to activate it again as it states it's a digital license? Thanks, Josh.

Desktop icons - dual monitors extended view...

Windows 10

I am using Winows 10 with a dual monitor setup - extended display option. My laptop is the main monitor. I cannot get all the desk top ICONS to appear on the main monitor (this was the case some time ago but I cannot get to look that way now). Even though the main monitor (laptop) is not full of Icons some portion of the total destop ICONs always shows up on the second monitor. BTW - the same ICON always appear on the secondary monitor. How can I get get all ICONS on the main monitor only in extended view?

Hot Keys for Keyboard Input Languages (Win10 Pro)

Windows 10

Win10 Pro: Does not retain the Keyboard Input Hot Keys settings (eg: Left Alt+Shift+1/2/3/4/5) for switching between multiple Keyboard Input Languages. After PC restart only the "Left Alt+Shift" is maintained. However all of the "Left Alt+Shift+1" and +2/3/4/5 are lost. As I use 5 keyboard setting, I have to always roll through all of the options with "Left Alt+Shift" instead of going directly to "Left Alt+Shift+X".

Windows 10 Does not Update In Sleep Mode

Windows 10

PCs in the office do not always download and install Windows updates when set to the default sleep timeout. I was using the default Power settings for the PCs in the office. The PCs are left on 24/7. The default setting puts a PC to sleep after it is idle for 30 minutes. This is great for reducing power consumption in the office. But it seems to have the side effect that Windows Updates do not download and install automatically. With the Sleep timer at 30 minutes updates routinely seem not to happen. I often have to manually start the Update process, wait for the download, and restart the PC. I found that with the sleep timer set to 120 minutes the PCs would be updated and often the machine would restart without manual intervention. My take on this is that 30 minutes is sometimes insufficient for an Update to finish downloading. When the download is interrupted by Windows going to sleep it does not seem to resume but restarts at the beginning of the download. 120 minutes is enough time for even the largest update to download. Therefore, with that setting Update downloading is completed and the Patch is ready for the Restart. That is my current theory on the issue of updates that never download. It begs the question as to why the downloads are not completed during the workday. So maybe this theory is wrong. But why did changing the sleep time seem to fix that? Is my theory correct that PCs which go to sleep during an Update download never complete the download? Shouldn't the Update download in progress prevent sleep? Does a sleeping PC "wake up" to do a restart at the scheduled off hours time? Steve

Windows 10

Hi, I am attempting to setup multiple "project sites" with a single document repository but the idea behind it is that the project sites are broken up into small team globally and should create their own site based on the template. We want all the documents to link back to a single repository (I have this already setup along with my custom site template). The difficulty I am having is creating a "blank view" of the document library. Ideally by creating a new site they link back to the main repository but they only need to see documents relevant to that project. Because the project team will have several projects on going I am unable to perhaps pre populate a view based on project name for example (that would be ideal :-) ) In summary each project page need a document view only relevant to that project page, looking for ideas on how to achieve this. Thanks, Chris

Why is FUAVRCV.exe *32 running constantly?

Windows 10

My Circle of Death icon is constantly flickering which is distracting. to understand why this is happening I started task manager to see what might be causing this and discovered that FUAVRCV.exe *32 is constantly running and using processor and memory capacity. The description shows it as Fax reception. My computer is not connected to a phone line so this makes no sense. I'm hesitant to end this process without knowing what it is really doing. Can anyone help?

How Do I Interpret the Throughput Value on Task Manager Ethernet Graph

Windows 10

Task Manager on the Performance tab / Ethernet selected shows a Throughput value. This is at the top right corner of the box containing the moving graph. At idle I a Throughput of 100Kbps. My link speed is 1Gbps as shown by the LEDs on the NIC card. When I right click the Ethernet graph and select Network Details the Link Speed is 1Gbps and Network Utilization of 0%. So what is the meaning of the Throughput number at 100kbps? I can see small spikes on the graph about every 1 second. The Receive number in the lower corner shows 16kbps flashing about once a second. So clearly there is little network traffic. I assume Utilization is 0% because very few bits are being received every 1 second and it appears nothing is being sent. So my question about the Throughput number. Is it simply the vertical scale of the Graph? If that is so then calling it Throughput is misleading. What does the Throughput number represent and how is it calculated? Steve
